    Miniatur Wunderland is unique and huge. However, airplanes are not uncommon in model railroading. T^he biggest issue is that planes and airports take up an inordinate amount of space.

    Nice video, but it doesn't have much to di with the Covid crisis as the movie is already from June 2011. Which was even before the MERS-virus (Middle East respiratory syndrome) was discovered.

    Cheers,
    Huub
